Virgin Coconut Oil 1000 mg - 120 Softgels
  • Beneficial Fatty Acids
  • Source of MCT's
  • Cold-Pressed and Unrefined
  • Trans-Fat Free
  • Made with Certified Organic Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is a traditional dietary staple of the people of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands and has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years.  NOW Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process. 

Coconut oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8).  MCT's are less likely to be stored in the body as fat than most other fatty acids.  Combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.

Coconut oil has many benefits. MCT oils burn like a carbohydrate and do not store as fat as easily as other oils.  It can withstand high temperatures when use in cooking, and the oil will not go rancid.  It nourishes the thyroid, and is helpful for all conditions of the thyroid.  It is very anti-viral, and the compounds in coconut oil can actually dissolve the outer wall of a virus, so taken regularly, this oil can keep you healthy during the cold and flu season.
